BeActive Physio: Empowering women to live an active life through every stage

Women’s bodies undergo vast transformations throughout life, especially during our childbearing years and menopause and as our bodies age. From the expanding belly and breasts to abdominal separation and pelvic floor weakness to the hormonal changes that occur in menopause, women go through physical and emotional changes that are different in each decade and phase of life.

It’s important to strengthen, tone and look after our amazing bodies, no matter what stage of life we’re at.

That’s why being fit and active as a woman and mum matters.

When Shira Kramer founded her Melbourne physiotherapy studio, BeActive in 2006, her mission was to create a space dedicated to the health and wellbeing of women. Shira has become the go-to for pregnancy and post-natal Physiotherapy and fitness, with her passion for women’s health the driving force behind her determination to make BeActive a reality. Offering women of all ages and physical capabilities a safe, nurturing environment to focus on health and fitness is her lifelong passion.

BeActive collaborates closely with some of major hospital, obstetricians, GPs, Maternal Child Health nurses and women’s health specialists to ensure you have the best care, from start to finish. With an emphasis on pre and postnatal care, pelvic floor treatment, injury management and staying active at every life stage, BeActive quickly became an industry leader in women’s health and fitness.

We help many inspirational women through their pregnancy and motherhood journey including AFLW superstars, media personalities, motherhood and fashion influencers, and even Hollywood stars!

To continue to provide women with the highest level of care, BeActive treats every client as an individual, incorporating their personal dreams, capabilities and goals into a fully tailored exercise plan.
